Particularly if you're stuck in the same routine....rum and coke, gin and tonic, Old Fashioned....Or if you enjoy more exotic cocktails and want to experiment, this place is perfect. While there is a decent amount of space, they seem to be very strict on their door policy and maintaining a comfortable level of guests inside. Particularly on a weekend, don't... More

Order the Blue Blazer when you are seated at the bar! You won't be disappointed :) Worth the wait and a must if you are in Boston.

Drink is very different than many places in the area. Basically, you tell the bartender what you like (type of alcohol, flavors, etc.), and they make you a drink based off of that. My friend and I went during Tiki Sunday, which happens the second Sunday of every month at 4pm. They have tiki cocktails and tropical island inspired bar... More

First we wait in an hour line, honestly for Saturday night after dinner not crazy. We get in and then they "seat" you standing. Our server was supposed to ask flavor profiles and tastes instead we have to order our classic drinks. I order a French 75 a simple cocktail usually served up. We not only get to wait standing...

Below Sportello, great place to grab drinks. I actually really like that they reserve standing space for you and then when space at the bar opens, they move you. Seems so civilized vs. normal bar seating! The best part- just tell the bartenders what kinds of drinks you like, you'll get a great concoction! Get the PB&J for a snack-... More

Wanted to grab a drink and a light meal and was more than impressed. Excellent service that was not pretentious, amazing cocktails catered to your liking and spectacular food. The beers were amazing, the mushrooms were even better and the burger was the best I've had on the east coast. Can't wait to return.

My brother got me a gift certificate to this place for my birthday back in September and I just had a chance to get down there yesterday. It's a little hard to find because their signage isn't very obvious, but it's located in the basement level of a large building on Congress Street. There is a very limited food, beer... More

Great speakeasy in the waterfront. Cool location below street level with a great vibe. Cocktails are made with love by skilled mixologists. If you don't know what you want they will whip something up. Never had a bad drink.

Came here with a few friends for a couple drinks on a Saturday evening. I've heard the hype from quite a few people, and being big into cocktails I had high hopes. Space: if "unfinished basement" is the vibe you're going for, the claustrophobic space is going to be your cup of tea. A long, windy bar with uncomfortable bar... More

Started off standing in line waiting to get in, which wasn't a problem at all, but was rudely greeted by the woman taking names telling us to move out of the way. Three people leaving the bar told us to get a bowl drink to share so when we finally did get in we were excited to try one, well... More
